GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Mesabi Trust operates as royalty trust in the United States, which produces iron ore pellets.

Mesabi Trust was formed according to an Agreement of Trust dated July 18, 1961. The Trust was organized under the laws of the State of New York. It is a royalty trust organized to derive income from an iron mine. Under various agreements the mine is operated by Northshore Mining Company, a subsidiary of Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. Northshore pays royalties to the Trust mainly based on the selling price of pellets shipped from Northshore's pellet plant at Silver Bay, Minnesota, on Lake Superior approximately 45 miles from the mine, plus a smaller royalty based on tons of ore extracted at the mine.
